HOW TO TAKE CARE OF OUR LINEN
Knowing how to take care of linen correctly will ensure that the product will last for many years in perfect condition.
Here you can find some suggestions that will help your linen stay soft and neat as the first day.
Please take a look at our care label. You can wash our linen at 30, 40 and 60 degrees, depending on the piece. Make sure that anything you wash along with the linen is of similar colors. If your washing machine allows you to select the water level, choose the highest since linen is a super absorbent fabric and also avoid overloading the drum.
HAND WASHIf you choose to wash linen by hand, do so in a gentle motion but never wring it. When using detergent, choose one that is neutral or mild and does not contain bleaching agents such as chlorine or peroxide. Do not pour detergent directly onto textiles, rather add it to the water first and make sure the detergent is fully rinsed from the garment before drying.
DON'T TWIST THE LINEN
Don't twist linen clothes to wring out the water. Linen dries very quickly, but if you twist it, it will lose its fluffiness.
USE OF BLEACH
Detergents that contain bleaching agents are perfect for white clothes, but should not be used for colored clothes, as the clothes could become discolored or stained. Chlorine can weaken the fibers and cause them to turn yellow. If white fabrics need bleaching, use an oxygen-based bleach.
HOW TO DRY LINEN - IN A DRYER OR CLOTHESLINE
If the color of your linen is white, dry the garment in the shade to help preserve the original white. If you have bought natural linen, you should know that it is not solid neither to light nor to washing. We recommend drying on a clothesline; lying in the shade, being a very absorbent fabric, it will dry super fast and you will have it as if it had been ironed.
HOW TO IRON LINEN
If you buy one of our products, you don't need to iron it. The less you iron it, the prettier the natural wrinkle of the linen will look.
If instead you want to iron it, do it when the garment is still a little damp. Look on your iron for the name: LINEN (almost all have an indicator) to iron it properly.
Linen admits dry cleaning with perchlorethylene but we recommend that you use a less polluting system. Perchlorethylene, which is commonly used in dry cleaners, is highly polluting. In case you need dry cleaning for any reason, you can substitute perchlorethylene for wet cleaning. Here is an interesting article:
